Do not measure your success of your day by how happy you are or how closely your day matched your plans. Love sometimes asks us to to face a hard truth, to grieve, to change our minds or perspectives, to remember, to work through a resistance or procrastination, to see more clearly, to be humble, to let go of something we wanted. Love works in delight and joy; Love also works in our discomfort. Trust Love's deep care for you.
